A customer success story of how Objective Paradigm came together with G2 Gives to utilize a Review Campaign to not only donate to the Chicago Tech Academy, but also assist students in furthering their education.
Headquartered in the heart of Chicago, IL, Objective Paradigm is a growing recruiting firm focused on being the most respected and effective in the industry. They have a reputation of donating their time and efforts to various charities and community groups such as Feeding America, T4 Youth, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Make a big difference
Here at G2, one of our business values is Be Compassionate and Authentic. Based on this value, our program G2 Gives bridges the gap between the software and nonprofit communities by offering nonprofits a variety of benefits, including raising funds for their organization.
G2 announced a partnership with the Illinois Technology Association (ITA) to raise $100,000 for the Chicago Technology Academy High School (ChiTech), in which G2 would donate $10 for each complete and verified review. The funds would be used to support reaching a $500,000 fundraising goal to ensure students continue to receive the same high-level education.
Some of the unique opportunities offered by ChiTech include project-based learning, real-world learning opportunities, STEM education, and entrepreneurial initiatives. As a result, the school has become known not just in Chicago, but throughout the country.
Running an Internal Review Campaign with G2
The software used by a company’s employees powers their ability to contribute to organizational goals and growth. However, the decision makers are often not the ones who regularly use the software, which can result in companies losing an understanding of whether the technology they purchased is working for them or limiting success.
Objective Paradigm encouraged their employees to review the software that they used professionally. G2 provided the company with a report on their team’s feedback compared to industry averages from G2 data. They were able to observe how their employees felt about the tools they used while providing an easy way for the team to collectively support ChiTech.
Donated to the Chicago Tech Academy.
Students assisted in growing their education.
Supporting a cause
Objective Paradigm took this opportunity to gather feedback from their 55 employees on their personal experiences with the company’s choice of software and give back at the same time. They started by announcing the campaign and goal to their employees, and later distributed the G2 landing page for employees to share their reviews.
To date, Objective Paradigm employees have helped 103 ChiTech students expand their education by writing a total of 103 reviews, raising $1,030 for ITA with additional reviews and funds continuing to grow!
Of the process, Managing Partner of Objective Paradigm, Ryan Pollack, had to say, "G2 is a fantastic platform that supports our own mission of transparency in software performance and delivery of services. The exercise of evaluating the tools we use gave our team additional insight into what works and what maybe isn't working as well as we thought it was.
